[GUIDE] Get 5GB storage with box.net and any device
I've seen this guide in various places but i thought it would be most useful in here. I have searched to see if anyone has posted this here but found nothing.
MOD EDIT: Any app/guide that leads to defrauding a Company of money by spoofing their services is considered Warez.
Mounting Box.net on your Desktop
For those on linux theres a way to mount the box drive as webdavfs.

You can easily mount a WebDAV filesystem on Linux so that you can access the files just like they were on your local computer. One way to do is to install the davfs2 package (this is the Ubuntu/Debian package name, though it should be similar for other distros). Once you have installed it, add an entry to /etc/davfs2/secrets with your login credentials for the WebDAV account.
For box.net, the command would look like this:
sudo echo “https://www.box.net/dav username password” >> /etc/davfs2/secrets
You need to choose a mountpoint on your local filesystem for the WebDAV mount. In this example I am going to use /mnt/box.net, so go ahead and create the directory:
Now add an entry to /etc/fstab for this filesystem, which will allow you to automatically mount it at boot time. If you want your normal user (instead of just root) to have write access, specify your uid (username) and gid (can be the same as your username) on the mount line along with your newly-created mountpoint:
https://www.box.net/dav /mnt/box.net davfs defaults,uid=username,gid=username 0 0
Save your changes to /etc/fstab and now try mounting your remote filesystem. It should mount successfully and now be accessible at your mountpoint. Note: if you have trouble writing files to the WebDAV filesystem, take a look at this article
for a solution.
MAC & Window Users
To have box.net, Dropbox, Googl Docs, Sugar Sync, and others in one folder use otixo.com
. Just sign up and add your accounts then click on the link at the bottom of the page that says 'otixo on your Desktop'. It will guide you on how to mount your cloud services as a network drive.
and sign up for free. I tried it and it works perfectly.
When I used root explorer it didn't work all the time, I used prop editor and I cleared the box.net app data before trying again and that seemed to do the trick
